Lanam Ridge Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Lanam Ridge Cemetery in Brown County, Indiana.  It is located just off of Lanam Ridge Road near Yellowwood State Forest.



We visited this cemetery on September 20, 2015.  It was a little hard to find as it is up a short gravel drive on a hill.  It's much easier to see in the fall and winter.  I am not sure when this cemetery was established but I do know that it is also known as the Neal Brown Cemetery.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Our first stop is at the grave of Clem Gregory Adams.

Born: June 24, 1847, Tennessee
Died: July 10, 1925, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of Joseph Gregory (?-?) and Henrietta Cleveland Gregory (?-?).

She was married to James Adams (1836-1897).  They were married on June 18, 1859 in Smith County, Tennessee.  He is buried in Dry Branch Cemetery in Benton County, Tennessee.

They had one child:
George Wright Adams (1876-1936) - buried in Dry Branch Cemetery, Benton County, Tennessee.

Here is the grave of Nettie L. Baughman.

Born: November 21, 1874
Died: December 8, 1877

I have no information about her family.  There are several Baughman's buried in Lanam Ridge Cemetery, though I can't find any connection to this particular grave.









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Here we have the grave of Mark Brown.

Born: January 19, 1908
Died: February 4, 1908

He was the infant son of Marion Lee Brown (1862-1930) and Lourena Baughman Brown (1864-1930).  They are buried in Lanam Ridge Cemetery.

He had one sibling:
Paul Brown (1901-1930) - buried in Lanam Ridge Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Here is the grave of the Brown Family. 

We have on the right Lourena Baughman Brown.

Born: 1864
Died: 1930

On the left is Marion Lee Brown.

Born: 1862
Died: 1930

They had two children: 
Paul Brown (1901-1930) - buried in Lanam Ridge Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana (shown at the bottom of the headstone). 
Mark Brown (1908-1908) - buried in Lanam Ridge Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

I have to wonder if there wasn't some sort of accident that makes it so they all have the same death date.  But so far, I haven't been able to find out any information.  

UPDATE:  Please refer to this article about the deaths of the Brown Family.  It is listed as one of Brown County's Unsolved Murders.  You can read about the coroner's inquest into the deaths here.

This is the grave of Ephraim Thomas Carter.

There is a poem inscribed at the base of the headstone:
"We miss thee from our home. 
Father, We miss thee from they place.
A shadow o'er our life is cast,
We miss they smiling face,
We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
Our home is dark without thee
Father, we miss thee everywhere."
